JH Airport is looking for bids to help complete new Art Circle

(Jackson, Wyo.) - The Jackson Hole Airport is currently looking for bids to help complete the next step of its renovation, the Art Circle. The Jackson Hole Airport recently completed a terminal expansion with the goal of improving both the functionality and aesthetics of the airport. The expansion included improved landscaping adjacent to the terminal building, as well as a number of art installations. "The parking lot and traffic patterns for the Airport were left largely unchanged throughout the project, and now stand in contrast to the terminal building," stated the Jackson Hole Airport in a release. The Airport Board recently commissioned a monumental bronze statue which will fit prominently at the entry of the Airport (read more about the new statue here ). Naturalistic “rock outcropping” formations and landform is also of significant importance to the artist’s vision and design concept for the art installation.
